Posted on 8 Nov, 2017 by GFA

In October 2017, GFA Bridges launched a rural electrification project through the installation of solar energy kits in each of the six hamlets making up the village of Ambatoharanana, in Madagascar. This village, situated in the rural commune of Antanifotsy, 100 km from the capital Antananarivo, has about 1,146 inhabitants and no access to electricity. Street lighting is one of the main needs expressed by the village population. The project aims to provide the population with an environmentally friendly renewable energy source that benefits all families of the village.GFA finances the purchase and transport of complete energy solar kits. The community supports the installation of the kits with man power.

This project is undertaken by Jaona Andriamampierika, GFA Team Leader of the Fiscal Agent of the Global Fund in Burundi.
